In Cook County, DuPage County and Chicago's suburbs, that experienced lawyer is Debra Braselton of The Law Firm of Debra J. Braselton, P.C., in Oakbrook Terrace.
Ms. Braselton practices divorce and family law exclusively — and with excellence. She believes that despite any family disagreement, lifelong relationships built through marriage can still be honored and preserved, particularly in cases where children are involved.

Child support is an area in which needs grow and change. It is often the subject of post-decree litigation because children are entitled to an increase in support as the parent's income increases. Conversely, if a parent's income decreases, a decrease in child support may be appropriate.
Child support is always modifiable. A child support order entered at the time of a divorce will almost always need to be revised every few years.
